Fashion Friday: Must-Have Fall Coats

Living in Oregon, it’s amazing how quickly the warm, sunny days can turn into rainy, chilly, blustery days. Having the right coat for the weather is important to staying warm and dry – and stylish! In my opinion, there are four types of coats that are essential to making it through the fall season.
Must-Have Fall Coats on Whatever Bright Things - Four essential coat styles to keep you warm and dry in the fall months. #fallfashion #fall outfits


  1. Peacoat or Tweed Coat: This coat will keep you warm, but you probably don’t want to wear it out in the rain. The plus side is that peacoats come in many different colors and slightly varying styles that you choose according to your personal style.
  2. Down Vest: It’s usually a bit too warm to wear a full-on down coat in the autumn months, so a down vest is a good option for staying cozy without all the bulk of down sleeves. I also love how you can play with what you layer under a vest – sometimes it’s fun to have bright sleeves peeking through!
  3. Rain Jacket: There’s no question about it – a rain jacket is essential if you live in a rainy climate. What I love most about rain jackets is that they’re lightweight and can be layered over just a tee-shirt in September, or over a thick sweater or sweatshirt when November rolls around. Rain jackets don’t always look the most professional or stylish, but I’ve found that a simple black jacket is easily styled with most boots and a fun scarf around your neck.
  4. Army Jacket: This is another lightweight option, perfect for layering over a sweater. An olive-khaki color is neutral tone without being blah, and it looks great with all the jewel and nature tones found in a lot of fall clothing. I like how casual an army jacket is – perfect for wearing with jeans and brown boots.

And that’s it! My four must-have fall coats. What kind of coat is your go-to for fall?

      I almost think with rain jackets you have to just go basic & jazz it up with a fun scarf peeking out! There’s nothing worse than having to wear wet clothes all day. Thanks for stopping by!
